2021 Toyota GR Yaris tuned by HKS to 349kW with nitrous and widebody kit

Is Toyota's factory-built, rally-bred GR Yaris hot hatch not manic enough for you? Try this for size: a GR Yaris fettled by Japanese tuner HKS, pushing some sports car-slaying performance figures. Under the bonnet, HKS has retained the standard car's 1.6-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine, which in Toyota-tuned factory guise develops a respectable 200kW of power and 370Nm of torque.

Toyota GR Yaris prototype hints at hotter-still GRMN version

There’s little question the 2020 Toyota GR Yaris is serious about cementing itself as a dedicated hot-hatch challenger, but does Toyota have even better things up its sleeve? This latest development prototype, spotted testing at the Nurburgring, suggests a flagship GRMN Yaris may be on the way. Within Toyota’s performance division there’s GR Sport models, largely devoted to handling and appearance but not performance upgrades, then the powerful GR hero models, like the GR Yaris and GR Supra.
